    • Method Detail

      • useMaxForLimit

        public boolean useMaxForLimit()
        Description copied from class: AbstractLimitHandler
        Does the LIMIT clause take a "maximum" row number instead of a total number of returned rows?

        This is easiest understood via an example. Consider you have a table with 20 rows, but you only want to retrieve rows number 11 through 20. Generally, a limit with offset would say that the offset = 11 and the limit = 10 (we only want 10 rows at a time); this is specifying the total number of returned rows. Some dialects require that we instead specify offset = 11 and limit = 20, where 20 is the "last" row we want relative to offset (i.e. total number of rows = 20 - 11 = 9)

        So essentially, is limit relative from offset? Or is limit absolute?

        useMaxForLimit in class AbstractLimitHandler
        True if limit is relative from offset; false otherwise.
      • supportsVariableLimit

        public boolean supportsVariableLimit()
        Description copied from class: AbstractLimitHandler
        Does this handler support bind variables (i.e., prepared statement parameters) for its limit/offset?
        supportsVariableLimit in class AbstractLimitHandler
        True if bind variables can be used; false otherwise.
      • bindLimitParametersFirst

        public boolean bindLimitParametersFirst()
        Description copied from class: AbstractLimitHandler
        Does the LIMIT clause come at the start of the SELECT statement, rather than at the end?
        bindLimitParametersFirst in class AbstractLimitHandler
        true if limit parameters should come before other parameters
